The conversion of Midtown’s landmarked Crown Building into an ultraluxury hotel/condo hybrid is chugging along, and like many of the other super-high-end buildings on or near Billionaires’ Row, the project has largely been shrouded in mystery.

We know that there will be 22 condos, as well as 83 rooms in the Aman New York hotel; we know that about half of its apartments have sold thus far; and we know those apartments will be extremely over the top, with a spate of ridiculous amenities to match. But in keeping with the air of exclusivity that developers of Billionaires’ Row buildings try to cultivate, no public listings for those units had appeared on the market—until now.

Three apartments in the building have been listed by Douglas Elliman, including a 21st-floor penthouse asking a whopping $59.466 million, a price tag that puts it on the list of the city’s most expensive apartments for sale. The other apartments—a two-bedroom and a three-bedroom, both on the 18th floor—are asking $13.5 million and $34.5 million, respectively.

The so-called Vana Penthouse takes up the entire 21st floor, spanning 6,287 square feet and with walls of windows fronting both Fifth Avenue and 57th Street. It has all of the uber-fancy trimmings you’d expect: custom finishes, three fireplaces, a home theater, a private elevator lobby, and the list goes on. Each of its four bedrooms has its own en-suite bathroom, and the master bedroom comes with two walk-in closets.

Still, this isn’t even the most outrageous apartment in the building: There are several other apartments asking north of $70 million, as well as a $180 million penthouse in the building’s titular gilded topper. (That place has, somewhat improbably, already found a buyer.) Amenities include several private clubs and restaurants (including a private jazz club, apparently), a 25,000-square-foot spa, and a “sky lobby” that has a wraparound terrace.

Douglas Elliman’s Noble Black, Raphael De Niro, Roger Erickson, and Richard Steinberg are repping all three listings.
